Asked whether the report in the Guardian was correct, the PMS replied that there was a statement in the Budget on the issue of wellbeing. This had said there was a lot of work being done on the measurement of wellbeing. The Prime Minister had also made reference to wellbeing in his speech to the CBI, where he had said the Government would set out in the coming weeks how we will bring in a new emphasis on wellbeing in our national life.’

Asked if the Government was going to ask the ONS to draw up a list of questions to measure wellbeing and happiness, the PMS replied that there was a huge amount of literature on this; it was something the Prime Minister had spoken about in Opposition and it was something that this Government had said that it was going to look at.
